Belmond Copacabana Palace, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Superbly positioned overlooking the sea, this glamorous landmark in Rio has been welcoming the rich and famous since its Art Deco doors swung open in 1923. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced here and the Rolling Stones tuned up in its grand salon before their concert on the beach.
The magnificent pool is where Brazil’s style setters gather to soak up the sun. The hotel’s restaurants are also destinations in themselves, whether for great local dishes or fine Italian dining in the Hotel Cipriani Restaurant.
